Wow! What a great response to the “Half Way There” post and contest! Thank you all so much for your encouragement during this deployment. It feels good to be on the down-hill side, but it does feel like time is starting to go slower!
This past week was a productive week for me! One of my best friends from college was here. We did exactly what I thought we would do - - lots of pampering, shopping and late nights! It was fabulous! We also celebrated Charise’s 7th Birthday.
I did actually get some projects done while she was here, nothing big, but since we are counting, I thought I would share them with you. But first, the big news of the day is that Re-upholstery 201 will be starting tomorrow and continuing through the rest of the week. Many of you have been asking for a tutorial on a more complicated chair or even couches, so this next project is a great “stepping up in difficulty” project!
One of my first projects (#55) to report is the most obvious. I’ve been “spring cleaning” on my blog. It was getting too messy and too busy - - so I went for a cleaner look…BUT now all my pictures have resized and things aren’t laying out correctly. I wish I was more computer smart - - but that just wasn’t one of the gifts God gave me. So – hang with me as I attempt to figure this all out!
None of my other projects were overly exciting this week, but since we are keeping count, here is a quick list!
1 more bag (Project #56)
3 more pillows (Projects #57 – #59)
3 sets of curtains (Projects #60 - #62)
This set of curtains was a “re-make” of some curtains we found at World Market - - loved the fabric, but they needed to be tweaked a little. I’m still waiting for “after” pictures, so for now you can just enjoy the beauty of the fabric!!
Join me tomorrow as we get started on a new chair for Re-upholstery 201
